Road 66 Hexagons

I've been adding the white background to the hexagons for my Road 66 Quilt from Di Ford's book, Primarily Quilts.  I wanted to see how the fussy cut diamonds would look when the blocks were joined, so I've cut a few of those and joined the first two blocks.  


 I started working on cutting the hexagons for this quilt before I started work on the Rotherfields Grey center and got a bit sidetracked adding rounds to it.

Most of the hexagons I've made so far have at least one fussy cut round and a fussy cut center.  


I've had so much fun cutting the pieces for these blocks, that I probably have enough cut to make 2 quilts or to make this one really huge.  


Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Love the Setting diamond pieces on this quilt... Can you tell me where I might find more information or the name of that type of setting?
I was telling a lady at quilting about it today as she was working out ideas for the hex flowers she has pieced ...I mentioned the idea I had seen this morning checking out blogs.... and she like the idea. so I have spent the last 2 hours trying to figure out where I had seen it!.
